  1. Thanks to all of you for the kind comments. It was great meeting so many of you in person! As some of you know, the Caballero received a Senior Gold award at the 2019 meet. It also took a "1st Place" in its class at the Cincinnati Concours on June 9. I want to thank those of you who helped and supported the build, especially Pat O'Malley, Larry Schramm, 57BuickJim, SMartin and d.e.i. The Caballero is tucked away until late July, when it will appear at the Concours of America at St. John's in Plymouth, MI. Hope to see many Buick fans there, too! I have planned some winter projects for the car, including installation of the power brake unit, fabrication of new floor mats and improving the rear seat trim appearance.
  2. Hope all goes well, Lamar. Health - and safety - first!
  3. Looking forward to seeing you and the car, Adam! It looks great. 57BuickJim, Larry & Joyce Schramm and I are leaving Wednesday morning and plan to arrive on Thursday afternoon. It's about 1060 miles for us.
  4. Mine isn't automotive - or pet - related. Completed my Master's degree at Stanford in 1995 = 95Cardinal
  5. What do you need done? For repairs on castings and challenging jobs, DelDuca Welding in Flint is excellent.
  6. The way they examine the cars at Autorama, the small scratches on the liftgate glass might have been enough to differentiate my car from the award winners. It's a very comprehensive judging effort, including very detailed under-car inspection. I don't know how my car scored, but I was proud of it!
  7. I agree with 13CADDY; a true gentleman. I was fortunate to meet Don at Chickasaw and tour his collection with Larry Schramm and a few others in 2018.
  8. I am having the same problem, including the error message and no search results when I click on the "Content I Started" menu item under the "Activity" tab. Is there something I can do to correct this?
  9. Looks like someone added a Ford Pres-a-lite cigarette dispenser/lighter. Did Cadillac offer something similar? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qPS7wPm-ZEA
  10. Looks like some retailers are discounting the OER price, but it looks like it's going to cost close to $200 to replace both armrests. https://www.oerparts.com/shop/1978/chevrolet/nova/parts/interior-soft-goods/door-panels-components/armrests/ https://www.classicindustries.com/shop/1975/chevrolet/nova/parts/interior-soft-goods/door-panels-components/ https://restorationpartssource.com/store/Nova_1975_1979_Interior_and_Soft_Trim_Parts_Armrest_Parts.htm?gclid=Cj0KCQjwyoHlBRCNARIsAFjKJ6Cv9GEYhBW_FasoptOib9u4KB0Q5GV350Nud86oNuQeJ0DWKXtv3P8aApImEALw_wcB#969875 https://www.ss396.com/nova/ICI-X75R.html?gclid=Cj0KCQjwyoHlBRCNARIsAFjKJ6CplUnrD53E6-3p9_e1QijUWnmR_EhZihT0cWeuM31qykOVJZ4ECfQaAtkLEALw_wcB If you don't care about originality, you might be able to use the earlier (68 to 74) style armrests, they are a lot less expensive. That would require some sort of close-out to cover the front "snorkel" attachment hole.
  11. I also found Hidem/Hydem for 60 to 70 cents per foot: https://www.defender.com/product3.jsp?path=-1|5948|2333932|2333934&id=3128104 https://www.sailrite.com/search?keywords=hidem DLT Upholstery Supply has a variety of colors, starting at about $28 for a 25 yard roll. Looks like a good deal! https://www.dltcorporation.com/searchresults.asp?Search=hidem&Submit=
  12. Sailright's flexible metal tack strip might work for you. https://www.sailrite.com/search?keywords=tack strips
